The consensus on Howl’s Moving Castle seems to be that it is a very pretty disaster, particularly in light of what the movie could have been. So what we end up with are stunning visuals that tell an incomprehensible tale. Let’s have a look at some of those visuals:

The opening of the movie starts with a view of the clouds and then pans down to the city below. I took several screencaps from this process and made this composite image. Click for gigantic view.

Here are some eeeevil tanks. Which are used in war. Which is bad.

Sophie in town. You can’t see it in this picture, but those planes overhead fly using hummingbird-style flapping wings. And they are used in war. Which is bad.

    Not tanks, an armored train. Which are essentially traincars with armor and guns on them.

    So what you’re saying is, you don’t care for the tired hackwork that he writes, but can that man ever DRAW!

    There are people who I could be persuaded to kill for skills like that.

    The movie was really different from the book, In a lot of ways, but I liked that it didn’t try to copy the book exactly. I actually preffered the movie, defidently one of Miyazaki’s best!
